Seen & Heard: Sweaty Betty Is Open

••• Flyers are posted on Duane between Greenwich and Hudson for Like Father, shooting today. Must be this film (?) with Kristen Bell and Kelsey Grammer.

••• The Sweaty Betty women’s fitness apparel store at Franklin and Church has opened.

••• The fall schedule at the Museum of Jewish Heritage includes this on December 7: “Already widely known for her Pulitzer Prize-winning book A Problem From Hell: America and the Age of Genocide (2003), Samantha Power became the youngest person ever to serve as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. from 2013–2017. A powerful crusader for U.S. foreign policy, genocide prevention, human rights and democracy, Power will sit down with her friend Abraham H. Foxman (Vice Chair of the Museum and Director of the Museum’s Center for the Study of Anti-Semitism) nearly a year after resigning her post for an up-close-and-personal conversation about America’s role in the world today and what she sees as the most urgent human rights issues of our time.” And this on December 12: “Sculptor, photographer, and environmentalist Andy Goldsworthy—creator of the Garden of Stones (below)—returns to the Museum of Jewish Heritage on the occasion of the publication of Andy Goldsworthy: Projects. Molly Donovan (Curator of Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington) will speak with Goldsworthy about his large-scale sculptural work around the world. The new book presents more than 40 recent projects that are inspired by and interact with the natural landscape. It also features notes by the artist—many of which are published for the first time.” Prices for each event are $25 general, $15 museum members, $7 students.

••• James commented about a message from Soho Pediatric Group about its abrupt closing: “Due to the high volume of requests for patient records and forms, we are extending the office hours from Tues Sept 5 – Fri Sept 8. Hours 9-4 p.m. Due to the high volume of requests for medical records and forms we have extended the hours.” Read the rest.

••• Up through September 20 at Sapar Contemporary: “Uthman Wahaab: Phenomenal Woman, a solo exhibition of work from the Languishing series. Uthman Wahaab is an artist who possesses an overarching interest in social phenomenon; yet, he is not concerned with a consistent use of medium or even singular aesthetic style. Utilizing the disciplines of painting, graphics design, film, photography, sculpture and installation, Wahaab’s work positions a critical lens at social phenomenon not only within Africa; but also, in the way that globalism and post-coloniality continues to complicate the African socialscape.”
